This could be me as I write my novel which is as much mythology as it is about the reality of being human in the modern world. Like this woman, I write without the covering of clothing. Barriers between self and ideas are discarded as well as the inhibitions. The only differences between her and me would be the trivial facts of my using a computer, being older, and also being male.
My writing has become a way of being in the world with the recent engagement with a Novel Writing Challenge. The challenge of word count has been met, but their writing is far from being finished. I have begun to re-approach what has been written in order to prune away the trash and fill in missing holes. As this process continues, the word count rises, but more importantly, the story takes on its own pulse, its own urgency to exist.
I haven’t been here much because of the writing. Hopefully, this will change as I slowly go through the re-write process without having the pressure of time, of deadlines.
